The climax of each College year is the "Young 
Designers Exhibition." More than 850 young artists 
of the Philadelphia College of Art bring their finest 
work to the public in a month-long display. A 
thousand works of art, representing every department 
of the College, freshman to senior year, fill the 
entire main floor of the College as well as the courtyard 
studio. In a special area the College displays the 
work of the students receiving awards for distinguished 
achievement at graduation ceremonies, Saturday, 
June 11. Tomorrow's world of art is revealed through 
the work of these gifted young men and women in the 
fine arts, industrial, interior and dimensional design, 
the arts of advertising and illustration, fabric design, 
art education, photography and the film.

Each year the Women's Advisory Board sponsors a major 
event to raise scholarship funds for the Philadelphia 
College of Art. In the past this event has taken the form 
of an afternoon scholarship party held in the spring. This 
is the first year that the Board will sponsor a dinner to be 
held immediately following the preview of the Young 
Designers Exhibition. 


The cost of education at this college and at most others 
has more than doubled during the past ten years. In 1953 
tuition at PCA was $570. By 1964 it had increased to $1400,. 
Yet this high tuition pays for only 657c of the actual cost 
of educating a student. Every student, therefore, receives 
a subsidy of 357^' of the full cost of his education and many 
students, with limited financial resources, receive far more. 

To assure professional career opportunities for these 
more needy and talented young men and women, $120,000 
has been earmarked for their scholarship assistance during 
the next school year in addition to $60,000 in tuition loans. 
Only $20,000 for scholarships is currently available from 
endowment, and $100,000 must be raised through contributions 
from individuals and industry. 

You can help us achieve this important goal by attending the 
Young Designers Dinner. Your generous support is vitally needed 
to assure an education to the many talented and worthy students 
who appeal to the College for scholarship aid. Your dinner 
reservation is a tax deductible donation. Please use the enclosed 
reply card today.
